This session will help you build a career plan that can either accelerate you through the ranks of higher ed or provide you with the requisite skills to jettison you into your dream job. The session will feature examples of higher ed veterans and provide you with a clear idea of how to create your very own professional development plan. The reality is, the changing landscape of higher education means our positions in institutions are being questioned and we need to position ourselves for success.

Our panel shares over 50 years of experience in a wide variety of professional environments. Please feel free to submit questions in advance via mention or DM to @jp_rains on Twitter.
